Old Business things from before

New Business things coming

Burn Pile – We will burn some of the old debris at the Ice Park on April 20th. Chris Miller and Chief Latta are checking out the piles this week.

Wildland Refresher and Pack Test – Log Hill is again hosting their annual refresher and pack test on Saturday, April 13. One change this year is no breakfast will be served. Plan accordingly.

Banquet – The department finalized the banquet for Saturday, May 11 starting with a cocktail hour at 5:30 pm. The Bon Ton has graciously offered to host the event. Dinner options are: Prime rib, Grilled Salmon and Eggplant. A motion was made, seconded and passed for finalizing our date and location for the banquet.

July 3rd Event – Dave Turner has again hooked up the department with great musical options for the annual July 3rd Fireman’s Ball in Fellin Park. This year, the department decided on You Knew Me When and AJ Fullerton (total cost of $1000) for the bands. Additionally, the department noted the need for a tent and that it would cost $200 more (for a total of $630). A motion was made, seconded and passed for the band and tent.

Music in the Park – The department also agreed to match the $1000 donation for the series and will, again, pour beer during the 3rd and 4th weeks of the June series. A motion was made, seconded and passed for the continued support of MAMS.

Officers – A change was made official at the April meeting: John Fedel moved from Assistant Chief to Captain while Adam Kunz moved from Captain to Assistant Chief.

Membership - The department discussed a potential new, junior fire fighter (Dallas Farlin). A motion was made, seconded and passed to admit Dallas to the department as a junior fire fighter.

Pyrotechnic Training – John Fedel noted that our best shot for official training would be in February of 2020 or August 10 – 16, 2019. John will coordinate with Chief Latta to ensure all who are interested are able to attend.
